A member asked:

Hello,, can a patient do more than one cardiac balloon catheterization? my grandma is 70 and this is the second time she is doing cardiac catheterizn

Certainly.: Cardiac catheterizations are generally just diagnostic procedures, but may be combined with a ballon angioplasty or stent placement. As long as vessels cause problems one at a time, a patient can have as many procedures as necessary. However if all three major vessels have significant blockages, bypass surgery may be indicated.

Cardiac cath: It is not at all unusual for a patient to have more than one catheterization or balloon angioplasty
